Inside Out/Dreamers bus tour comes to downtown Aurora
The Inside Out/Dreamers bus tour is coming to downtown Aurora on Wednesday, Nov. 1 to celebrate America’s DREAMers and rally the community to support the DREAM Act. Inside Out/Dreamers is a nationwide participatory art initiative (the Inside Out Project), launched by award-winning artist JR to create a portrait of America that includes immigrants and the descendants of immigrants alike.
Here’s how it works: The “Inside Out/Dreamers” photobooth trucks are traveling around the country to highlight and uplift DREAMers. On Wednesday, they will bring a photobooth truck into Aurora to give everyone an opportunity to take their pictures and transform their personal identity into works of public art. These photos will be instantly printed and included in a series of high visible art installations featuring a group of large-scale black and white portraits, creating a portrait of America.
Additionally, alongside this installation, the Emerson Collective will organize media availabilities and group action with community leaders to showcase the art, bring people together and urge support the Dream Act.
Have your picture taken and learn more about how you can be part of a movement to help DREAMers.
